Make the Right Choices social-media contest open for young Ontario filmmakers

Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Ann Cavoukian, has launched a video contest to encourage better privacy and social media habits among people who spend time online.

Make the Right Choices calls on young Ontario filmmakers to produce a short video to educate people about protecting their privacy and making the right choices online.

The contest is open to residents of Ontario aged 18 to 30. The 12, 27, or 60 seconds of original material must fall under one of the four categories: Stay in Control of Social Media; Don’t be a Cyber-bully; Stranger Danger; and Don't Get Fired.

The first-place prize is a 15-inch MacBook Pro. Contest closes Nov. 30 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
